#1 to open for Middlesex in white-ball cricket von MJL456 30.04.2018 07:45

Daniel Ricciardo has joked that the only things that scare him are sharks and snakes after being asked about whether he is worried by the form of Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen.Verstappens elevation to Red Bull before Spain has resulted in a win and two podiums, with the teenager?rapidly rising up the standings in the process. Ricciardos unbeaten 2016 qualifying record against his teammates also came to an end at Silverstone and he has not been on the podium for four races.The Australian driver thinks Verstappen is only going to keep getting better as his career progresses but sees no reason to worry.Asked if he was worried that Verstappen was already performing at a high level at 18 years old, Ricciardo said: It is an interesting one because you look, and if he is to keep progressing at the rate that he started, if he is to keep getting better and better for the next five, ten years then perhaps it is frightening for quite a few people. But the only things I am scared of are sharks and snakes, so that is okay!Ricciardo insists he is relishing the challenge posed by his young teammate.All experiences are good. I have always enjoyed a new challenge. I have always welcomed new teammate or whatever it is because a) it is a challenge, especially if they are quick, but b) it is also another area where you can keep improving yourself.Whether you learn the way they drive or set up the car, or this or that, there is always something you can take ... even, obviously my qualifying record, particularly this year it is very good, but even if I am quicker in qualifying there will always be at least one corner where maybe they are doing something different, or a little better, so even if you are half a second quicker say, you can still learn things.So it is nice having different drivers, basically to keep trying to learn from and if you are open minded you keep improving yourself. Max has come in and come in very, very strong, so ideally we both keep raising the bar for each other, and I think that is what we have done. We are closing the gap in the constructors championship, to second, which is nice. So if we keep doing this we will be quite good. Timofey Mozgov Jersey . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Jersey . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. http://www.wholesalenetsjerseys.com/jeremy-lin-jersey/ . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. Nik Stauskas Jersey . They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. "Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name. Jahlil Okafor Jersey . How great will be revealed in the next couple of days at the board of governors meeting in Pebble Beach, Calif. When we walked out on to the field there was a group of Pakistani supporters on the right-hand side and they were giving us all sorts of stick - You should be back in the pub and you should be drinking Guinness celebrating St Patricks Day. You dont play cricket. So Ireland captain Trent Johnston later recalled of St Patricks Day 2007. By the end of the day, Johnstons match-clinching six out of Sabina Park had knocked Pakistan out of the World Cup - and proved to them, and the world, that Ireland do indeed play cricket.Now Pakistan go to Ireland with the World Cup on their minds: not the ghosts of 2007, but 2019. While the contraction of the World Cup to ten teams is viewed exclusively as an Associate issue, one consequence is that, for the first time ever, Pakistan are in danger of missing out on the World Cup.For all the buoyancy surrounding their magnificent Test win at The Oval, Pakistan lie in ninth position in the ODI rankings, seven points behind West Indies. If that does not change before September 30 next year, Pakistan will be forced into a cut-throat qualifying tournament, in which only two of the ten competing sides will progress to the 2019 World Cup. For now, the criticism of one-day internationals as lacking context does not apply to Pakistan.That Pakistans World Cup participation is in jeopardy at the very moment when they are on the brink of becoming the No. 1 Test nation in the world only serves to accentuate the differences in their performances across the two formats of the game. They have lost their last five ODIs.We can improve our ranking: we know were far better than where were ranked at the moment, one-day captain Azhar Ali said. There are a lot of reasons behind our one-day performances. Weve lost a lot of experienced players in the recent past. The youngsters are coming in and need a bit of time to get settled. We need a bit of consistency in selection - we have to back the guys who are coming into the squad. In the last few years we didnt perform to all aspects of the game.Pakistans bowling remains a potent force in ODI cricket. But in their athleticism in the field, and, more pertinently, their power-hitting and approach to batting, Pakistan have been left behind.Our performances are not as consistent as in Test cricket, and we need to really improve our skills, Azhar said. The fielding is really important, and the way the scores have really gone up in the last year or so - we have to really match that. Weve been discussing this for the last six months or so that we really need to catch up with the way other teams are playing their cricket.You need to go at a good pace in one-day cricket. That doesnt necessarily have to be big hitting all the time. We play a lot of dot balls in one-day cricket so we need to improve that and keep rotating the strike.Pakistan hope that the return of Sharjeel Khan will reinvigorate the top order. After an underwhelming start to his ODI career in 2013-14, averaging just 17.63 in 11 matches, Sharjeel has been recalled, following a fine tour for Pakistan A in England and an encouraging WT20 tournament. He will be expeected to provide belligerence and six appeal: he hit seven sixes during an innings of 125 against England Lions last month, and has a strike rate of over 100 in List A cricket.ddddddddddddHasan Ali and Mohammad Nawaz, a pair of 22-year-olds who have also impressed for Pakistan A - Ali is a pace bowler, Nawaz an allrounder who bowls left-arm spin - might get selected for their ODI debuts, as Pakistan accelerate their attempts to overhaul the side. It would also help if Azhar himself extended his Test form to the ODI game: he has not made a half-century since last July.Ireland also approach the series in a state of uncertainty: they have slipped to 12th in the ODI rankings and, three years after a tie with Pakistan at Clontarf, 10km away from Malahide, are still awaiting an ODI victory against a Full Member in Dublin.Its time we not only put ourselves in positions to win games but actually win game, the captain William Porterfield said. We need to be learning. If you look at the records of the teams starting off in international cricket weve got one of the best.The batting line-ups overdependence upon Ed Joyce, who scored two undefeated centuries in the 2-2 draw with Afghanistan, is worrying: Ireland have been well-beaten in the four ODIs this summer in which Joyce has not scored a hundred. The return of Niall OBrien, who scored 72 at Sabina Park nine years ago, will help, but confusion still surrounds the role of Paul Stirling.Though he has scored two ODI centuries opening against Pakistan, and continues to open for Middlesex in white-ball cricket, Stirling was deployed at No.6 against Afghanistan, and is expected to be used as a finisher again against Pakistan, even though Porterfield said, Long-term I see him at the top of the order. I think hes most feared at the top.If Boyd Rankins absence deprived Ireland of a unique threat, succession planning with the ball is progressing more smoothly than with the bat. Barry McCarthy, a zesty cricketer who seams the ball, has taken 14 wickets in his first six ODIs and impressed for Durham, while Peter Chase and Craig Young are now both fit after a series of injury concerns.Weve gone through a transition ourselves in the last two years, Porterfield reflected. Against Afghanistan we had 70 caps in our whole attack, bar Kevin OBrien. Thats the exciting thing for ourselves. A lot of the lads coming in are under 23 or 24 and looking to stake their claims. We just need more games for them to build up their experience, so when the next World Cup comes around theyve got a battery of games under their belt.If the pitch is unlikely to be as green as that in Jamaica nine years ago, it will be more conducive to seam than when Ireland played Sri Lanka at Malahide in June. Ireland have the chance not merely to record another victory against Pakistan, to add to that one Johnston led them to in the Caribbean, but also to increase the pressure on crickets governing elite to make good on the promise of progressive reform.
